Q:

Rear grass catcher assembly 917272955 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
The 46" and the 48" decks are very limited with what they can support for baggers because the vortex within the deck is not as sufficient as other decks.
The bagger 917.248950 will not work for this tractor model. There is only one bagger that will work, which is part number 24990 or model number 917.249900. Unfortunately, this deck has since been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available for purchase. The reason for the discontinuance is unknown, but it may have something to do with the efficiency and effectiveness of it on this 48" deck. These types of attachments don't work that well with that size deck. 
If you are determined to have the bagger on the unit, you can run a Google search for ' 3 Bin Bagger 24990' to see if there are any still in circulation online that you could purchase. 
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Thank you for the help and the insight about the bagging capabilities of this deck. It does have the high lift blades already on it. I have it as a backup to my regular Craftsman riding lawn mower 42" with a very good bagging system. I had found a this NIB 248950 kit on C/L for very cheap, which is why I asked if it would work. There is also a 917.249900 NIB found on C/L. Although you said this will fit my 48" deck, it is listed as a bagger kit for a 46" deck. When you log onto the Sears Parts web site and put the model number or parts number it shows up as a 46" kit. Just want to be sure if I travel 2 hours to purchase it that it will fit my 48" deck. Could you furnish me with a list or a web site that I can enter the model number or parts number and see what other Craftsman tractors or riders that this will fit? I know that the bagger kits are designed to fit more than one series of decks, but it is extremely hard to find any place with a cross reference for more than one number at a time. Thanks, Ron

Thanks for the response Ron, and I want to apologize because you are right, bagger 24990 is for a 46" deck. I made a mistake by checking the model in your title and not the model in your details. I apologize for the mistake.
Based upon 48" deck model 917.273241, the bagger attachment is part number 24916, which is the only bagger made for the tractor. That one is still being sold through SearsPartsDirect.com. I have added the link below.

Bagger 24916 for Model 917.273241

I have also attached the tractor fit up chart below for your reference. This is an internal document, so I hope it pulls up for you. When you go to check the attachments for your model, you will only use the first 5 digits past the 917. So, for model 917.273241, you would CNTL F and input into the search box 27324. That will highlight your model and show you the attachments made for it and thier corresponding part numbers. Hope it works.

Once again, my apologies for the mixup on the models within the title and details, I'm usually pretty precise with my answers. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. I looked up the model numbers. I am sorry the bagger will not fit your tractor. The reason is the bagger is made for a tractor with a 48 inch mower and your tractor has a 42 inch deck. The lower chute is different.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Hello again. Why wouldn't a 917248950 bagger work for the 91724916. My rear end looks like C in the 24916 manual and A in the 248950 manual? It looks as if it would work and without the 420974 kit. Thanks

A:

It does look like it would. The numbers I gave you are for current made models. The 248950 is an older model. There are many "older" model items that will fit your tractor. We only have a listing for the current "new" model items.
